I did okay so far..
Breakfast: kashi oatmeal
Lunch: tomatoes and cheese on half a tortilla (just like pizza!)
Snack: a couple pistachios, a couple grapes, and a package of O'CoCo's (so good, taste like teddy grahams but better)
Dinner: A cup of vegetable soup (I know its 90 degrees out, I'm a freak) and half a chicken breast

Ill probably have some chocolate tonight or one of those Clif Zbars. I bought them at whole foods yesterday and I really can't wait to try it. I hope its good!

Well, I deviated AGAIN! Ugh. I am working at the kids' VBS this week and it is just throwing me off.

I had a small "s'more" at VBS and my afternoon snack was a WW bagel with cream cheese. I also sampled my son's first big baking project: cinnamon rolls. They were good - the kid's got potential. :) The rest of the day stayed on track. Great if I were trying to maintain; not so great for trying to lose.

I am off to the gym and am resolved to stick to the plan today. I am taking an apple to VBS, so I don't get tempted to eat the cra**y snacks.

B- e/w omelet w/ LC cheese and veggies, grapefruit
S- apple/string cheese/almonds
L chicken caesar ( very light on dressing and parmesan)
D- italian chicken and steamed broccoli

Today~
B~ 1/2c Uncle Sam Cereal, 1/4c "lower" fat homemade granola, 1/2c soy milk, & coffee
S~ 2 apricots & 1/2 apple (it was mealy so I only ate half)
L~ Went to a BBQ~ 1 veggie dog on a ww bun (brought it with me), potato salad, 1 pickle spear, 4 strawberries, 3 cubes of watermelon, & 1 beer
S~ Pumpkin/ww/flax muffin
D~ Spicy Kim Chi Soup, 1c steamed snow peas, 1/2c brown rice, nori, & a small salad with sesame dressing

I figured I would eat more than my usual lunch at the BBQ so I compensated with a lighter than usual dinner. It worked pretty well. I've barely had 64oz of water today though (I usually am way over 80oz.)

Zenor,
Did you make the Matta Alu Kari yourself and how do you make your homemade granola? I like to put it in my yogurt and I am usually looking for a crunchy snack.
Thanks,
Love

Yes, I made the Matta Alu Kari at home. :D I love Indian food, but it seems to be a bit healthier when made at home versus restaurants. I will post both recipes for you later this weekend (I love sharing!) We are having guests over today and I need to get cleaning.

OOO thanks. I love indian, but with kids and all going to dinner can be expensive. We used to frequent the buffet, but that is out of the question right now. So I'd love to have any recipies you've got. You sound like such a fantastic, and healthy cook.

We had Ethiopian, so I am off to look for some good recipeis I can do at home.

From Extending the Table: A World Community Cookbook. If you like ethnic food this is a great cookbook to pick up, it has recipes from all over the world.

Mattar Alu Kari (Curried Potatoes & Peas) Serves 4

In medium saucepan, heat:
2T ghee or oil I used 1T canola

Add and saute:
2 1/2t ginger root, chopped
2 1/2t garlic, chopped
1/2c onion, chopped
1/4t salt

When onions are brown, add:
1t ground cumin
1/2t ground tumeric
1/8-1/4t cayenne pepper I used 1/2t

Stir in:
3 medium tomatoes, chopped I used 2c canned
1 1/2t ground coriander or chopped cilantro

Cook 5 minutes, until liquid evaporates. Add:
1 large potato, cubed
3/4c water Use a bit less if you use canned tomatoes

Stir well. Bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, 10 minutes. Add:
3c frozen peas

Simmer 5 minutes, or until potatoes and peas are tender. Garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve over rice.

According to my calculations it comes to approx. 200 calories per serving without rice.

Okay, so this one I tweaked a lot. This is the original recipe and I'll try to note what I did differently. I made it awhile ago, so this may not be exact. This recipe is really easy to play with, so don't be afraid to experiment!

Granola

3/4c brown sugar I believe I used 1/4c
1/3c vegetable oil I used 2T of canola
1/3c honey I used 1/4c
I also added approx 1/3c orange juice to the liquids to help cut the fat
5 cups oatmeal I used oatmeal, plus barley & rye flakes
1/2c raisins
1/2c dry milk I didn't use this
3/4t cinnamon Used a combo of cinnamon, cloves, & allspice
pinch of salt

Mix brown sugar, oil, and honey (plus juice if using) in a saucepan. Heat until the sugar is dissolved. Combine dry ingredients in a large cake pan (9x13".) Pour sugar mixture over dry mixture and mix well. Bake at 375 for 10 mins (I had to bake it longer due to there being less oil.) Let cool in pan. Add raisins after cooking. Store in airtight container.

Even with all my adjustments a 1/2c is still 231 calories, so use sparingly unless you have calories to spend. Enjoy. :D

Today~
We had friends over for dinner, so I had a few things I don't normally eat, but I had small servings.

B~ 1pc hf oat bran toast, 1 large fried egg, 2 apricots, & coffee
L~ Lentil-barley stew
S~ Small banana
Appetizer~ 6oz champagne, 3 multi-grain crackers, 1/2oz goat cheese, & 1T mushroom pate
Dinner~ 1 salmon cake, 1T low-fat mayo sauce (with horseradish & capers), 1/4c zucchini, 1/3c grain medley, salad with 1t balsamic dressing, & 8oz red wine
Dessert~ Brownie sundae (1 small crumbled brownie, 1/3c vanilla ice cream, & 1T organic chocolate syrup) & coffee

Aside from too much wine and dessert I did okay. I had lots of water (at least 100oz.) Hopefully the scale is merciful in the morning.

3 cups of salad with: beets, carrots, spinach, red leaf lettuce, romaine, chickpeas, tempeh "bacon" crumbles, green olive slices and a garlic/sunflower seed/herb dressing

1/2 cup homemade potato salad with corn, celery, onion, green onion, shredded carrot, spices and "Vegenaise"

1/2 cup marinara sauce and 2 breadsticks

16 oz. Mango Acai Tea with agave nectar
